Found this old news article and photo about the anchor that was placed outside the original Trader Vic's on Ward Drive. It came from the San Francisco Bay.



Vic's partner Granville Abbott (standing next to the anchor) incorporated the Trader Vic's name in Hawaii and bought Vic out in 1941. Here are dueling newspaper announcements from May of 1941.

Check out this cool custom plate from Trader Vic's with a great rendering of the building and anchor.



Made by Vernon Kilns for Granny Abbott and Trader Vic's LTD, Honolulu, Hawaii. Again confirming the trademark copyright that Abbott got in the then territory of Hawaii. Sneaky Tiki!

Spotted this old photo of a few excited patrons about to enter the Trader Vic's on ward stroling past the lei stand.

Nice article from 1940 with a young looking Trader Vic setting off to Hawaii to open his second restaurant. The myth that he travelled the south seas before opening his restaurants is perpetuated here.
